We cannot know how to properly deal with something if we do not know what it is and how to work with it.
Pornography and sexual addiction are a true behavioral, brain addiction. If we do not understand that, and simply tell the addict to “just stop,” we will be disappointed constantly. When we become educated about the addiction, we will learn to set and hold appropriate boundaries, and encourage recovery action and behavior, but never enable a life-crippling and relationship-damaging addiction.
There is more education than ever before on this specific addiction and we hope that you will seek out helpful resources to aid in your healing.
We suggest starting with these books:
